Record immigration to the UK

-

Immigration to the UK has reached record levels. The Ukrainian war in particular has strained this figure: 90,000 Ukrainians fled to the United Kingdom.


Due to the large number of war refugees from Ukraine, more people have emigrated to Great Britain than at any time since the Second World War. As a result, 500,000 more people had moved in the twelve months to June than had left for the UK, the British statistics office ONS announced on Thursday.

This does not include the roughly 35,000 migrants who crossed the English Channel illegally into the UK until June. According to the information obtained, the total population of the United Kingdom is 67 million.

Also many refugees from Hong Kong

In addition to about 89,000 people from Ukraine, 76,000 people from the former royal colony of Hong Kong and 21,000 refugees from Afghanistan arrived in the country, for which the British government launched a special visa program for them due to the repressive policy of the Chinese leadership.

Also, a large number of international students have returned following the end of strict corona rules. Net migration in the comparative period up to June 2021 was 173,000 people.

Brexit: Many EU citizens are leaving Great Britain

Most of the immigrants came from non-EU countries. On the other hand, many EU citizens still leave Great Britain due to Brexit.

It is estimated that 51,000 fewer people live in the country than in the EU. The conservative government had promised to significantly reduce immigration after Brexit.
